Item details

When Graduate Hotels began designing their boutique hotel in the college town of Oxford, MS they sought Goodman to capture both the hotel’s unique contemporary vibe and the spirit of the town and college for guests with strong memories of Oxford. Prior to painting, Goodman spent time learning the intricacies of the town’s history in order to capture a sense of nostalgia in his pieces. He interviewed residents of the town and those who had attended Ole Miss recently and in decades past.

The resulting pieces are nuanced in details that recreate a strong sense of place for guests with strong ties to the Oxford community while also adding to the hotel’s post-modern aesthetic.
